There is plenty of railroad travel nowa days. Head Paynter & Co.'s ad. at the top of this page. 'Squire llenry Hallenbeck Is still suffer ing with his eyes. A number of Odd Fellows of Columbus are spending the day In Dayton. The new Lagonda house will open up about the 1st of September next Mr. Sol Solomon, of Rochester, N. Y., was in the city yesterday on business. Miss Emma Pearce, of Cincinnati, Is vis iting her aunt, Mrs. llenry Hallenbeck. The sale of the Funk lots Jri the north western part of the city yesterday was a fair success. Assistant Surgeon K. II.Grube, TJ. S. Military Home, Dayton, Is spending Wit tenberg week here. Harper's jrccfcty for. June 23d, has a picture of the new house owned by Mr. John J. Glessnerat Chicago. The big force of men working on the bridge work on the Bee Line, take their meals at the SL James hotel. Dave Wllborn, late head-waiter of the old Lagonda-house, Is one of the messen gers In the Chicago convention. A building permit was issued to John W. Pierce by the city clerk for a frame addition In the Fifth ward, valued at 8125. r .. The floral designs used at Colonel D. C I'utnam.'s funeral yesterday were" furnished by the Springfield Seed company. The Wiiberforco commencement was at tended by a larger number of people yes terday than for many years previous. The thermometer marked 83 degrees'to 90 degrees in the shade at noon today. A cool stiff breeze relieved matters wonder fully. Judge Young loves base ball, and his favorites change with the days that come and go. What's the matter with the judge? lie's all right. Mr. F. V. Hartuian, the coal dealer, who has been suffering with Inflammatory rlieu matory for about two months, is able to walk out again, with the aid of crutches. The new Bee Line bridge which replaces the one burned last Monday night near Sintz's quarry, now admits of the passing of trains. Tbey began running over the bridge last night at 8:30 o'clock. Xeap year is a sort of wild delusion any way. The pretty girl of Springfield has never any use for it, and the homely one is afraid to take advantage of its privileges for fear she will be rejected. Francis Kinney, who was killed near Cincinnati by a train, was a resident of this city. Schlndler A Coles furnished the casket, which they shipped. His remains will arrive in this city this evening. Inter ment will be made at Femcliff. The summer schools of languages at Chautauqua, Burlington and Chicago will have Volapuk classes. A Question, The inquiry as to whether or not we are being deprived of that saline and oleagin ous fluid of our maternal substance through the excretories of our pellucid cuticle with a sensible condensation of the moisture. Is at present pretty generally answered !n the affirmative, and in this respect it bears a remarkable analogy to the question as to whether Jason W. Phillips, No. 39 east Main street, is not selling by all odds the cheapest and best-fitting custom-made suits in the city of Springfield. It is indeed a problem both obstruse and profound to figure out any profit on the.) garments we are turning out at the suicidal price of S20 for a Scotch Cheviot Suit, or 35 for custom-made Trousers, but the pop ular demand Is for low prices and we are endeavoring to meet It to the best of our ability. . - man THE ALPHA CAMMA.

Meaning; the Chiefs Opinion of HI' Mm on the Springfield Police Force. - How many people wonder what Chief Ambrose thinks of his men on the force? This quest Is often asked in the minds of citizens who' know the chief is powerless In the'.appointiuents and has to take what the mayor and council's police committee give him. A policeman's Job is mostly secured by political Influences and it is therefore not always made up of the biggest, best and strongest men. There was Captain Hoggs, for Instance, who served a long time, when he had one foot in the grave. He bad. Influence, and excited enough of sympathy for himself, and was allowed to remain. The foice at present comprises many good men, but in the estimation of some who are on the inside, the force has as many worthless subjects as it has good, solid, sensible policemen. Chief Am brose, In a social talk with a Republic man gave his own private opin ion of each and every man on the force, of course, on the promise, that be would not pnt It in the paper. The chiefs head Is level, and make no mistake. He knows what good timber is for a policeman, and if he had the appointing power Springfield would have a very fly force of coppers. WANTED-A PAPA. Bastardy Hutt Against a Former Member of the Cadet Itand. It leaked out only today that a bastardy suit of a sensational character was brought In 'Squire Stout's court a few days ago, which was carefully kept from the active and ubiquitous reportorial ear. Miss Cora Bauer, a bright and good-looking girl living in the west end, swore out a warrant for the arrest of Robert A. Han sen, a former member of the Cadet band, charging him with responsibility for her aoon-to-be-consummated maternity. Miss Bauer woiks at the tailoring trade, is modest of demeanor, and Is less than 1C years old. She comes of very respectable parentage and was always regarded a good girl. The girl Is now very plainly cji relate. Hansell was released on S300 bonds fur nished by relatives. He also comes from a good family. Hansell Is now in Dayton working for. the Pasteur Filter Co, Royally Entertained. The third of the series of delightful In formal musieales was held last evening at the charming residence of Miss Alice Ben nett, on Maple avenue. The evening was ideally moonlit, the place a charming one. with Its verandahs and wooded lawn, and the musical programme all that could be desired. The "crowd" has never been more successfully entertained than last evening, and the occasion will certainly be memorable In the annals of the organiza tion. Music was furnished by Mrs. John Webb, Miss Bennett, Mr. Bertie Skinner, Mr. Denny Thomas, Mr. E. A. Morgan and others. The feature par excellence of the evening, however, were the recitations of Miss Iza Gale. Tbey were revelations of skill, power and versatility to the audience. llarn IJurned. A good-sized frame barn on a farm owned by John Pearson, five miles east of the city, burned Wednesday forenoon. It was entirely consumed. No one was at home at the time but the children of the family who are tenants on the place, and no assistance could be rendered. It contained nothing of value; insured in the Ohio Farmers'. The origin of the lire Is not known. 3STO. S3 "WEST CALLED TO REST. ath off the Aged Father of Oscar T. Mar- I tin, Ksq.. off This City. SA r'M' David M.

FREAKS OF INSANITY. A DI'JEASE MORE PREVALENT! MONO MEN THAN WOMEN. fnsai e Teople Not Ileeelred by the Deln slnjis of Their Fellow PutlrnU A Novel Experience Mental DIeaMe Almost Un known Among Savage Nations. Insanity Is a peculiar disease, more prevalent among men than women As a rule. Insane men either die or are cured in the ciuirsi) of a few years, and of the for mer probably 90 per cent, dlo of general paralysis It is the result either of over work or bodily excesses, and generally at-.lacks-a man between the aesof30and 40 An interesting fact In connection with the insane Is tne great age to which so many female lunatics I Wo A mad woman is really a first class Insurance risk In almost every lunatic asylum the women greatly ontnuinber the men. not only because they are so long lived, but also because they are so seldom cured It commonly surprises visitors to a lunatic asylum to find that insane people are not for a moment deceive.! by the do lusious of their fellow patients Each will think himself perfectly sane and thy, while kuowinc that all the others oro hopelessly mad Although a lunatic's mental freedom may be destroyed. It does not follow that his consciousness Is abol lshed.

Incoherence and de lirium are all phases of Insanity Thb 'Christian Science" people say that all sin and all sickness are insanity Insane people frequently reason correctly, but from erroneous premises A delusion Is nothing but a false premise the conclu sions drawn from it may be entirely logi cal There is no reason why a man who thinks be has legs of glass, and in other respects is in possession of all his facnl ties, should not bo capable of making con tracts, and responsible for legal acts which have no connection with the sub ject of his madness Such a species of insanity seldom prevents a man from managing bis own afiairs or undertaking uiy legal relations for others , Most people are prone to delusions or Illusions of some form or other Many (leople never see things exactly as tbey are. if delusions and hallucinations are a test of Insanity, half the world would bo in lunatic asylums It is an interesting fact, recorded by Pritchard and others, that among savage nations mental diseases are almost un known They come forward with the dawning of civilization, and keep pace with tho advancement of mental culture The restraints Imposed by social order the diversity of interests, the pressure of universal competition, overwork. irrief9 anxieties and disappointed hones, the artl ficial life of cities, are among the causes most infiuentiai among civilized people In the development of Insanity Among weak minded and half educated people emotional religious revivals also operate to a great extent In France, however, the op;wite extreme is fiund. for while Indifference to religion saves the people from religions insanity, great numbers lose their reason through the vices for which their low moral standard Is resoon sible. It is a curious fact that raving maniacs are never attacked by any contagious disease Even consumptive disorders, dropsies and other chronic maladies base disappeared on the accession of violent insanity.
